“The Secret” To My Recovery

In my previous blogs I have spent a lot of time talking about the law of attraction, thoughts becoming things and how, if you truly believe in the unseen, then it will manifest before your very eyes.

Well, I wanted to explain this to you in more detail and show you just how my life changed direction from being stuck in a hopeless, headache stricken world, to being in such a healthy, happy place, overflowing with abundance! Not only that, but I now truly believe that ANYTHING is possible in life, as long as you believe it so. In Rhonda Byrne’s own words “You can have, be or do anything!”

I remember the day well. After a normal morning filled with my usual routine of generally feeling sorry for myself and browsing through Facebook to torture myself with what I was missing out on, I received a message from my good friend Lucy. We exchanged several messages back and forth, in which I obviously moaned about how unbelievably depressing and painful my life had become. At which point Lucy uttered the words “Have you read The Secret by Rhonda Byrne?”

She passionately tried to convince me that this book could be life changing. Little did I know that not only would this book give me my health, vitality and love for life back again, but it would also lead me on to finding a new career path and thereby using The Secret in order to help change other people’s lives.

Now if you haven’t heard of the Law of Attraction before and want to know more, this is the place to begin. Rhonda Byrnes’s book “The Secret” explains this in the most basic form, then teaching you how you can relate this to manifesting health, wealth or anything you have ever dreamed of into your life. The Law is as simple as, like attracts like! Whatever you focus on, you get! You might not realise it but your thoughts are shaping your life and your future right this very second. Makes you think doesn’t it? Can you see how worry and negative self-talk will only bring negative situations into your life? The book basically explains that you get what you think about most, whether you want it or not. If for instance you spend all day focusing on your pain and how horrible your life is, then the universe will reflect this back to you and you will only get more of it! So therefore it’s time to change the way you think.

As hard as this is to hear, everything you are experiencing in your life right now you have attracted! Whether it is pain, a bad relationship or debt for instance. The frequency of your thoughts match the frequency of what you don’t want and therefore you have manifested it without even realising. The more you don’t want something and put all your focus and energy into thinking about it, the more you powerfully propel it towards you! So you can see how one negative thought after another only leads you in to a spiral of doom. Change your thinking, change your life!


After learning that your thoughts create your life, the book then teaches you how you can turn this around and start to manifest the things you do want. The process is made extremely simply by Rhonda breaking it down in to three simple steps;

  1. Ask
  2. Believe
  3. Receive

Firstly sit down and write down exactly what you want in your life. It may be a new job, a specific place you wish to travel to, good health or a certain amount of money. For the first time in your life there are no limits!

Secondly, and this is the key, you have to BELIEVE that what it is you want is already yours. Can you imagine how you would feel if you had it already? Joy, excitement, fulfilment and elation perhaps? Feel gratitude for receiving it and the universe will match that frequency and will bring it to you.

Thirdly just sit back, relax and let it come to you. Do not question if it is coming as that only emits a frequency of doubt, which shows you no longer believe it is yours. Now, I know some people might think this sounds a bit airy-fairy, but trust me on this, as it actually works. I am walking proof! So are all the hundreds of thousands of other people the book has touched. You can take this fantastic principle and apply it to anything in your life. I would advise you to start small though and as when you receive what you ask for, your confidence in the process starts to grow so you can then aim to manifest something larger.

Rhonda’s book explains that this basic law is currently taught by a number of religions, from such influential people such as Socrates, Pythagoras and Sir Isaac Newton. It’s even found in ancient writings throughout many centuries. This book is so incredibly inspiring and literally transformed the way I think, which has resulted in my life circumstances totally changing.

For me, the audiobook of “The Secret” which is read by Rhonda herself, was even more powerful than reading the written book. You can really feel the passion that emits from her voice, along with hearing personal accounts from other inspirational individuals such as Jack Canfield, Maurice Goodman and Bob Proctor.

Another big feature in the book is gratitude and how this can bring more of what you want into your life. If I am being honest, when I was at my lowest point clinging to my pounding head, slumped on the cold bathroom floor, crying hysterically I would have said, “What the hell have I got to be grateful for right now?” This is where my biggest mistake lay. The list was endless, yet I was too blind to see it:

  • An incredibly supportive fiancé who stuck by me, no matter what challenges we faced
  • An amazing family that didn’t leave my side, and who were there to comfort me day in, day out
  • Friends who called simply to say they cared
  • A warm cozy bed to rest in
  • A roof over my head
  • Financial support from my fiancé and family
  • Cold fresh water to drink
  • Food to eat
  • Doctors and Specialists to visit
  • My family’s health

Although I didn’t know this at the time, the lack of gratitude I had only made matters worse. The moment my life started to turn around for the better was when I started to practice gratitude on a daily basis. It was hard at times I’ll be honest, but those really bad days suddenly started to feel just slightly more bearable. I’ve now learnt that the more gratitude you practice, the more abundant your life becomes.

I honestly don’t know where I would be today if this book hadn’t crossed my path. I dread to think actually. So if you haven’t read this awe-inspiring, life-changing, uplifting book, then I suggest you do so now! In Rhonda’s own words…

“There is no such thing as a hopeless situation. Every circumstance of your life can be changed “

  1. Love this last blog, Christie, about the Secret. You’ve done a great job summarising the book and how it can change the way you think and have it affect your every day life! Stay well, and be encouraged by it when the bad days come… hopefully less often these days because of the new life tools that you’ve learned!
